Is concrete hazardous waste? Is concrete a hazardous

I get the question on is concrete hazardous waste a lot, and while the answer seems pretty clear to me, for some reason, it keeps coming up. Let's take the question of is concrete a hazardous waste, or the hazardous nature of concrete, one step at a time. First, let's consider what is waste. Wikipedia calls it "unwanted or useless materials".

Air entrainment and its effects in concrete • Aggregate

Because the use of chemical and mineral admixtures in addition to air-entraining agents has become common practice, concrete users are always concerned about the effects of these admixtures on the air-void system and durability of concrete. Effects of water reducers, retarders, and accelerators were widely investigated by many researchers.

Avoiding the legal, financial and environmental consequences

With the rate of construction unlikely to slow down, there will be no let-up in the quantity of concrete washout produced. There needs to be an increased awareness of technology that can help concrete plants and construction firms meet growing demand, without suffering legal, financial or environmental consequences associated with waste disposal.
